Saputo, an SJE Group investment, has expanded its partnership with La Tablée des Chefs, an organisation dedicated to feeding those in need and developing crucial culinary education for young people in Canada. This new three-year commitment totalling over $500,000 will primarily benefit the Kitchen Brigades program focused on teaching high school students basic cooking techniques and the importance of a healthy lifestyle. With the Kitchen Brigades program currently active in 145 schools across Canada, our contribution aims to assist La Tablée des Chefs in reaching more than 200 schools coast-to-coast by 2020.
Providing high quality, nutritious products is part of our daily operations, while promoting a healthy lifestyle is at the heart of our values. By helping to promote smart eating habits and culinary skills, La Tablée des Chefs’ mandate aligns nicely with our objective to improve the wellbeing of those living in the communities where we operate.
The SJE Group commends Lino, Kai Bockmann and the rest of the Executive for this worthy initiative.
